Barbara Woodbury
web designer and developer

Barbara Woodbury has been designing and developing websites for 16 years. With a background in business and science and long interest in painting and drawing, she got hooked on the art and tech of web design and the joy of creating a unique web experience for her clients. Barbara is a Squarespace Circle member and has extensive experience in design and front end web development.  She specializes in Adobe Creative Suites and has built custom websites, framework websites (using Bootstrap, Foundation and W3 templates) as well as sites using Content Management Systems. Her coding skills include HTML5, CSS3, CSS Grid and Flexbox, Ajax, Javascript and jQuery, and she has studied Ruby, Python and Swift.

In 2017, Barbara and her husband, Patrick, started Whosewoods, a three-part design collaborative, Whosewoods Design, Whosewoods Viz and Blue W Labs.  Whosewoods Design focuses on web design and development, Whosewoods Viz on 2D and 3D visualizations while Blue W Labs is an environmental design initiative developing structures for use in jump starting oyster restoration in damaged habitats.  The process of going from an idea to a reality is what the Woodburys thrive on: to imagine, visualize and create.


"There are so many ways to build a website.  Figuring out what works is a very personal process.  When I begin a project, I focus on my clients needs, tastes and objectives to develop a design idea and feel for their website. I’m always inspired by my clients work and try to showcase their enthusiasm, depth of experience and expertise and through collaboration create new ideas, clarity and focus."

"Standing ovation to Whosewoods Design for making my web presence a reality!"

"Barbara’s talents as a visual artist and practical scientist combined to make Whosewoods Design an extraordinary website creation experience. Using her aesthetic sensibilities, computer mastery and remarkable patience, she helped me figure out both what I wanted my website to communicate and how I wanted my communication presented. She continues to advise me, while giving me the tools I need and the confidence to keep my website updated. With the infinite choices of colors, designs, font sizes, images, links, and all the rest that goes into creating a website, Barbara had the amazing ability to help narrow those choices into a cohesive whole to help me present my playwriting self."

"Wow! Barbara just designed a 2nd website for me"

"I am a critical, semi-perfectionist printmaker. I came to her with discs, slides, a flash drive and original prints. She used the best, and re-photographed many to get the truest image on screen. Endless cheerful patience! She knew just how to organize and present complicated material in a beautiful way. I am more than thrilled with the elegant look she created (out of chaos)."

"Many thanks to "whosewoods design", our web designer"

"As we prepare to hit the big red button to launch our new website, hmsomaha.com, a big "thank you!" is in order to Barbara Woodbury at whosewoodsdesign.com for her wonderful support and patience. She literally provided a turn-key service which allowed me to focus on what I do best, being a handyman, instead of taking time from my business to learn the web design process from the ground up. She also created our logo which has just the "right feel" I wanted for our company. After creating the site, she held the reins until I was ready to assume full control. If you need someone to help get your website off the launch pad, please reach out to Barbara. "
"Thank you, Barbara!"

"Barbara helped me redesign my old website."

"She listened to what I wanted and provided helpful recommendations and had great ideas to improve the appearance and function. She responded quickly and got the work done promptly. Her availability for follow-up questions has been terrific. I highly recommend her."

"If you need a logo or website"

"I am so happy with my new website. If anyone else is looking for a redesign, she was affordable, efficient, and pleasant to work with. She redesigned my logo to look updated but not jarringly different, and she built a whole new website from scratch with a great look and functionality, and she was very tolerant of my pickiness. I highly recommended her."
